Mankind Mind is pleased to present author Susan Tossman Blue’s stunning memoir AN AMBER HEART — which chronicles a ten-year personal journey from the northern Indiana prairie to South Georgia and on to the southern and central coasts of California, in a story that delivers truth within the context of often rare, good storytelling. The eBook presentation of AN AMBER HEART is available in worldwide release by Mankind Mind on Amazon’s Kindle, at iBooks, at Kobo and at Barnes & Noble’s Nook bookstore making the popular book accessible to readers everywhere. Steve Jackson, Mankind Mind’s CEO finds that ”It’s thrilling to bring An Amber Heart to more people — a book that is beautifully written and a story that is timeless. It fits well within our mission of discovery.”

True to its title, AN AMBER HEART promises a provocative journey and does not disappoint — “Do you believe ignorance is bliss?” Even as she ponders the question, events conspire to test Susan’s tightly guarded image of a blissful, perfect world. Forced to admit that her image of perfection hides a deep sense of shame and self-hatred, she faces a choice: hold on to the perceived dream and lose everything, or, let the dream go, and embark on the most daunting of adventures — to transform and open her heart. This is the tale of that adventure — a memoir wrapped within the magical folds of mythic storytelling — the journey of an unlikely heroine, who is guided by an antique amber heart, reflecting the petrified state of her own heart which she now wants to awaken. She’s aided on her journey by a stellar cast of characters, is introduced to the world of Eastern medicine, and explores the viewpoint that physical symptoms are clues to deeper issues. Navigating the labyrinths of society, religion, relationships, and preconditioned beliefs, reveals a surprising paradox: The challenge isn’t in remembering past stories that inform who she is today, but, rather, once identified, can she let her stories go? In a tale that unfolds while contemplating an amber-hued sunset, from a mountainside overlooking the Big Sur coastline — An Amber Heart charts an empowering path of awakening, awareness, and discovery in search of authentic change. In Blue’s words, “My journey has not been content with finding my self, but, rather, with transforming the self I find in order to open my heart. And, so, ultimately, this is a story about discovering self-responsibility.”
